Nothing says “family gathering dinner” quite like roasted potatoes. They are beloved by kids and adults alike, take no time to prepare, and they’re very easy to make.

If you like bold flavor as much as I do, try adding five spice to your roasted potatoes and you’ll be surprised by the result. Simply split the baby potatoes into half, toss with olive oil, crushed garlic, five spice, salt and pepper, and stick them into a hot oven. You’ll get beautifully charred potatoes with a warm taste and crispy garlic to go with it.

I love using colorful baby potatoes to make this dish for  great presentation, but you can use Yukon or red potatoes as well. To properly brown the potatoes, make sure to pat them dry after rinsing.

The best way to deal with garlic is to crush the cloves by using a garlic press without peeling. If you do not own a garlic press, you can grate them instead.

If you have 5 minutes extra, make sure to make your own five spice powder instead of using the bottled one from the grocery store. You’ll thank me later!

You can serve these potatoes with braised pork shank, roasted turkey breast, Chinese style chicken piccata, and honey soy glazed salmon. For a light healthy dinner, serve them with a green salad and bring them together with a simple vinaigrette. They also pair beautifully with just about any poultry, steak, and fish dishes. They are also delicious and satisfying on their own, drizzled with honey sriracha yogurt sauce and topped with bacon bits.
